The intervention program is the fruit of the author',s doctorate in 2006 and nowadays, after minor modifications, the NCJW (The Research Institute for Innovation in Education) in the Hebrew university is continuing to develop and spread it between at-linguistic risk Arab populations in Israel. The development of the original program began at 2003 and was modified and updated based on the research results and the field needs.
